I also have some doubts about the methodology and execution of your tests. Lens testing isn't only about using a solid tripod. Careful manual focusing on a useful subject is also a must.

I did my own (incomplete) tests on the 100-300 and the 75-3000 MkI and would certainly not say that the Panasonic "won hands down"! Also, I'd expect little to no sharpness difference between the Mk1 & Mk2 lenses.

I also tested the Panasonic 100-300 against the Oly 75-300 Mk1, and while the difference was small, the Oly was just a tiny bit sharper...
